Finally, after months, all the college football fans got their fix a few days ago during kickoff weekend with Week 1 (post Week Zero) of NCAA College Football. If you’re not a true fan you won’t understand, but for those of you who do, you can relate to the feeling I experienced leading up to that day…. chill bumps, hair standing up on my arms and … Continue reading Not Panicking with Hurricane Season – Mild Gusts from Week 1
Speaking as a Mississippi State University fan (and alum), I’ve seen my share of last place finishes, not only in the SEC West, but in the SEC as a whole. It is what it is, but my never wavering support of a college that historically has NOT been at the top of the SEC football food chain is exactly what defines me as a true State … Continue reading If You Ain’t 1st, You’re Last (or FIRED) in the SEC
Every week since the end of October, a handful of teams have played their hearts out, putting everything on the line, to either hold on to their College Football Playoff spot or to break into the Top 4.

If other NCAA Divisions did it, why couldn’t the power house Division I do it?? There are many opinions as to why… money, politics, it would extend the season too long, etc. I think it’s because the powers that … Continue reading CFP Committee – NOT all it’s QUACKED up to be!
As hard as it is to believe, it’s already November and we’re entering the home stretch of the college football season.

For today though, it could very well be Elimination Saturday for some teams… where dreams are dashed and hopes for a run at … Continue reading Give Me the Remote!
